Cheeseplate for Camera-Top Accessories

The backPack accessory for ultraCage delivers a convenient and extremely helpful rear plate on which to attach camera-top accessories. The backPack attaches to the ultraCage rear chassis to keep accessories clear of camera operation while still providing solid and stable mounting.

Use with Battery Plates

The backPack is often used to attach a battery plate/battery combination to power the complete rig (the Redrock powerPack is a great accessory for powering multiple camera-top accessories as well), or used to attach an external recorder in a place that is easily accessible and viewable.

The BackPack is an add-on accessory for the ultraCage™, and requries the ultraCage™ rear chassis to be mounted correctly. This is typically used in a full ultraCage™ setup with front and rear cages. If you are considering a handheld or shouldermount style configuration, consider the microBalance plus, which provides the same cheeseplate and battery mounting hole patterns, but in a plate that is better suited for lightweight handheld use.

If you plan on using the BackPack for mounting a battery battery brick, consider adding the powerPack C100/C300 Kit. This will allow you to power your camera and two additional accessories with your single proffessional battery.

Anton Bauer: Battery mounting holes are compatible with any Anton/Bauer plate using a counter bore hole pattern.The QRDSLR is one example of a compatible plate.
